     The Cutting Board, 35 W. Bridge St., has reopened its doors after two years of being closed.

      Since losing her business partner in 2012, owner Chelsea Wahrendorf has been working to get funds to re-open. Now, Wahrendorf runs the business herself. She works every day and makes all the food, which includes wraps, paninis and smoothies. Wahrendorf is hoping to give Oswego some healthier options for breakfast and lunch.

     “I feel like people struggle these days with their diet,” Wahrendorf said. “And they struggle with choosing the right foods to eat. It’s difficult because a lot of places capitalize on foods that aren’t very good for you.” 

     The Cutting Board is also very sensitive about diet restrictions and allergies. It offers gluten-free options, almond milk for those that are lactose intolerant, and Wahrendorf is working to get a separate panini press so people suffering from Celiac disease won’t have to worry about food mixture.

     Wahrendorf has made some changes from what The Cutting Board used to be. 

     “The menu encompasses more,” she said. “It’s more expansive. I didn’t have gluten-free bread before, I didn’t have smoothies, it was mainly just salads and sandwiches. I’ve tried to expand it a little bit and take into consideration people that have restrictions.” 

     The Cutting Board is currently open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., for breakfast and lunch. The business is closed on Sundays.

     “Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day,” Wahrendorf said. “So I really wanted to do breakfast. Since I’m doing everything myself, I couldn’t really be here for 16 hours to get through dinner. Besides, I feel it’s more lunch fare, salads and sandwiches, it’s more what people eat for lunch.” 

     Patrons are able to order food ahead of time at 315-343-1008 and pick it up for convenience.10574390 723329651061319 2187336706734093496 n

     Chelsea Wahrendorf has struggled hard to get The Cutting Board to open its doors again. Bringing healthy breakfast and lunch options to the Oswego community, and being conscious of people with dietary restrictions and allergies, The Cutting Board is a welcome addition to Bridge Street.
